yeah dating doesn't really happen over here and we tend to be more conservative than our friends across the pond.
We build the relationship up over time, then when we're sure there's something there we ask the girl out and have a date or two. I think to us, dating means a bit more so we dont have lots of dates like americans do.
when were dating, were basically already in a relationship. at least thats how it used to be, but things are slowly changing and American culture is coming over to us. apparently our schools now have proms with guys asking the girls on a date. that was never a thing when I was at school.

There's a dating culture in Britain as much as anywhere else! This sounds like a singular experience if I'm honest... I'd say the "slow friendship route" is an common in Britain as anywhere. Yeah, we have some weird social traditions but we're quite similar to most other western countries in dating.
I'd say the slow friendship is actually just getting to know somebody quite well and being friendly first, before you commit/become intimate...
(One last note, and I'm just being picky now, but Britain and the UK are slightly different things) :)
